Foundry Incubation Program
We are currently accepting applications from pre-seed / seed stage startups to participate in a 10-week focused incubation program to help startups accelerate their business. Mentors and EIRs will be paired with the startups to provide 1-on-1 coaching and advisory to address specific business issues throughout the program. For more information on the Program, please visit HERE.
General Application for Seed Investment
Ideally we invest in highly disruptive companies with a strong technical team operating in a large and growing market or an emerging market. We look for founding teams that are coachable, will be ready for a VC round within 12 months, and project revenue within 3 years.
The Innovation Accelerator is located in Sunnyvale, CA. Our expectation is that the C-Suite of our portfolio companies are resident in the Accelerator during the incubation period. Often, our portfolio companies will have the C-Suite in the the Accelerator and development teams in other geographies.
This application is purely for seed investments in companies looking for Acceleration services. All other investments are reviewed by our traditional corporate investment group http://www.skta.com/sk-telecom-ventures/
